there was a report that intelligence suggested an attack in benghazi saying that report was absolutely untrue. meanwhile, while authorities say that the attack in benghazi was carefully planned and coordinated, it is still unclear whether it was in response to the antiislam film or something timed to coincide with the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, or frankly, it could have been both. we just heard secretary of state, hillary clinton speak directly to the people of the region, saying that folks in libya, egypt, and yemen, did not trade the tyranny of a dictator for the tyranny of a mob. the ceremony had a message to americans. that is that the four people who came home today for their final time were all american heroes, who gave their likes for their country. the president, the white house and the state department have been giving out a couple of messages the past two days. the first is that u.s. government had absolutely nothing to do with this anti-islam film although it was produced in this country. that's a tough message to get across to the arab spring where people are used to di
